The Uppance Cometh

Mwahahaha. Remember, schadenfreude should be thoroughly enjoyed before policy analysis. It is good when people who professionally jeer at civil libertarians and cheer at heavy handed policing get a taste of poetic justice. This may have a chilling effect on free speech, but I doubt some mean bobbies will cause a rupture in over 100 years of boisterous British press history.

By the way, I was at the LibCon editorial meeting for this and this is an exact transcript:

Sunny Hundal: Hao! Dai ye! We won again! This is good, but what is best in life?

Hopi Sen: The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair.

Sunny Hundal: Wrong! Don! What is best in life?

Don Paskini: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.

Sunny Hundal: That is good! That is good.
